A new one has arrived and in a flash she is 6 months old!

Where does the time go?  As my children get older and older (or maybe it is me getting older and older), I feel like time just speeds up! I remember my mom saying this to me as I had my first child, “Enjoy, because it will speed past you faster than you could ever imagine.”  As I sat in the wee hours of the morning, completely sleep deprived contemplating what she said, I thought, she is crazy! I will be feeding this child forever!  Well, as with most things… she was right! It does just keep getting faster and faster, which is why I just love when families take the opportunity to document there sweet bundles at milestone ages.  If I didn’t have my albums (which took me, a photographer, forever to actually finish!),  it would be hard for me to remember!

This little sweet bundle, Miss E, is one of the happiest little 6month olds I know. Who wouldn’t be when you have an entertainer for a brother! I just adore all of you and so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the growth of your sweet crew.  Much love to you all and Happy 6 mths Miss E!:)

The first time I photographed this family is when they were getting ready to welcome their oldest daughter into their beautiful crew.  I have so enjoyed getting to know them over the years and watch little Miss P grow and now be a wonderful and adoring big sister.  Welcome to the world little ones! Congratulations and such a beautiful crew A and S.  I wish you many wonderful years together.

xoxo Annie

Happy New Year!!

 

It has been a while since I have post.  The fall always seems to get the best of me in this industry. I love it but it is sure nice to clear my head a bit come January.  For the next few posts, I will be back tracking a little bit :).

 

This family was so fun to work with.  I come from a large family and I love the energy that large families have.  Lots of hustle and bustle, different interests and things to talk about.  I so enjoyed getting one on one time with each of the kiddos and learning more about them! Congrats on your beautiful crew! I wish for you many wonderful things in 2015!

This little bundle was welcomed into the world by our dear, dear friends and we could not be more happy for them.  He is the first baby that has slept through a WHOLE newborn shoot! Hopefully that is a sign of wonderful sleeping to come! Congratulations to two of the most beautiful people both inside and out and you little boy.  We look so forward to watching him grow and could not be more excited for you all:). xoxo – Annie

Love their energy….:)   I have been photographing this sweet family for a long time and I have loved every minute of it.  They are one of the kindest, most loving crews out there and it is always a joy to show up at their door to see children ready to play! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to document your beautiful little guys! I look forward to watching your kiddos grow. Much love to you all….

Love…. Love… Love… sums this all up!  There is nothing more joyful to me than watching families embrace a beautiful, new addition to their family. I had the honor of watching this family welcome their first little one, Mr. J and he has been such a fun, energetic little guy to get to know! Last month, they added another bundle of joy, Miss E.  Thank you for the opportunity to document such a special journey! xo –

 

Dear Miss E…. this is a message for you for now and always…

May you always remember

You are BRAVER than you believe,

STRONGER than you seem,

and SMARTER thank you think.

(A.A. Milne – Winnie the Pooh)

 

I am excited to watch you grow into a beautiful little girl, both inside and out!

Boy.. this time of year always gets me. I have not posted for a long time because I have been out taking advantage of this amazing Portland weather (well not today!) documenting some of Portland’s finest! ! I love getting a sneak peak into the everyday lives of these incredible families, many of which I have been photographing for a long time.  Watching these kiddos grow, come into their own, gain new skills, new loves, tackle life in new ways….   LOVE!

Ok… here we go:)

 

This will be a series of posts… I have been photographing this crew for a long time now and I just adore them both inside and out!!:)

Sometimes in life, I have found that one needs to honor the need to retreat and take a break.  The past two months have been this with blogging for me. Life has been full and I needed to cut somewhere, so technology was it. I love staying connected and giving clients a little heads up on what we have been up to.  I am back now and am hoping to stay connected, by starting with this little bean.

 

OH… MY… GOODNESS! Is he not soo sweet…. and that hair… strawberry blonde spikes! I am in love! He was welcomed into this world by two of the nicest people ever.  Congratulations on your newest addition to your family. I wish you so much happiness! xoxo  Annie:)
